When having problems with chickens stop and think, what would Harlan do?
I've dealt with many thorns in my life and the flower is always worth the effort.

Chickens can lay no more than 1 egg in a day.  How many you get every day depends on the breed, time of year, and other factors.  It's better to look at what yearly number your breed is projected to lay.  For example it's only expected that my japanese bantams will lay a little over 100 eggs in a year.  Closer to 1 every 3 days.  While some good egg laying breeds may lay 300+ every year and therefore nearly daily.

Some of mine lay everyday and some every other.  I have so many I don't know who does what out there.  tongue

It depends on a lot of things.  If they're getting the proper nutrition and amount of light, and aren't stressed, they'll probably lay one egg every day or day and a half. 

Certain breeds of chickens have higher "production" levels than others, so it also depends on what kinds of chickens you own.  Age of the birds is also a factor.

I had one of my chickens lay 2 eggs in one day, they were3 about 1 and a half minutes apart. I seen her do it so it is rare but it can be done.
